Is it possible to move the lock button? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have just started adding Vista computers to our computer labs and have encountered a problem. Many users, who are largely unfamiliar with Windows Vista, will push the lock computer button instead of clicking on the small arrow which leads to log off. I have been able to replace the sleep button with the shutdown button via power management options. I also disabled sleep and hibernate with powercfg. The only piece still missing is to remove the lock button from its rather prominent placing so that users will be less likely to click it and then leave. Is there any way I could get log off to take its place? Any help would be great.
